Bridal Shower Decorations

There was a bridal shower for my niece today who is getting married in a month. So now I can share the decorations I had made for it.

These are the little boxes from Tie the Knot cartridge.  They are made so you can put something in them, like maybe candy, but I glued everything shut -- used them as a decoration on the appetizer table.

Her colors are green and purple, so I cut out these purple butterflies from the Paper Lace cartridge, p. 35.

The big project I was working on for the past week was for something to hang over her chair.  Not wanting the traditional umbrella, I bought a hanging decoration that was cute, and I thought I could alter it to incorporate her colors of green and purple.

Well, I removed all the white flowers and painted them with a mix of 2 green paints to get the color I wanted.

Then I made my own hearts, using the scalloped heart from the Sweethearts cartridge and the plain hearts from Art Philosophy cart, p26.

The lettering is from Birthday cakes.  They're cut from a glittery green cardstock, and the hearts are cut from dark purple cardstock, a medium shade of purple, and white.

Well after getting the decoration back together with her colors, I realized it wasn't easy to read being in a circular pattern.  So....I cut it apart and made this wall hanging/banner.

The ribbon is purple with purple tulle wrapped around it, but it looks blue in the photo.

I also made the bridal shower invitation (on the computer), and I took 3 copies of the invitation and fussy cut the gown 2 times and the flowers once and layered them onto an uncut invitation and made this shadowbox as one of my gifts to my niece.  Here comes the bride was cut from Sweethearts cart with the shadow.

Thanks for stopping by; hope this may help someone out there with some ideas for a bridal shower!

Just learned that Docerela Creations has a bridal shower challenge going on, so I'm going to enter my shadowbox (or any of these items!)


  1. Wow pat! These are wonderful! Love all your great details!
    I hope you will come over and enter this at Docerela bridal shower challenge, deets are on my right sidebar!

  2. Love all your projects. I made those little favor boxes for my husband's niece's bridal shower in her colors. (The small anti-bacterial lotions from Bath and Body Works fit really well in the wedding gown and Hershey kisses were in the tux). TFS all your hard work!

  3. Wonderful projects...I love your invites!

  4. Pat, Everything is on the front of the card. I used the washers as spacers and adhered the brad with mounting tape on the front to hold it.
    PS Thanks
